A renaissance man and great diagnostician. Caring and knowledgeable... Keeps up with current medicine and carefully explores options, well beyond his specialty. As close to a model for a gentleman and a scholar as you'll find!

Dr. Shapiro calls with test results immediately and is thorough in assessing symptoms. He saved my life. Wonderful and compassionate doctor.

in Clifton Park, NY |

Horrible and such a coward. Left me for dead after adminitering chemo drug. When my body rejected it, I felt much worse and he completely didn't want to deal with it anymore because he had no idea what to do. He didn't return any of my calls or even see how I was doing. I got increasingly Ill and when I called from the ER, I was told by his receptionist that he dismissed me from the practice. I can't wait to see what God has in store for him.
